New York: Muslim Mother Dumps Newborn in Garbage Bag


There would be a whole range of reasons for this. It could be the behavior from postpartum depression. It could be mental illness (muslims have one of the highest mental health statistics in the world). It could be hidden incest, rape or an illicit relationship and she tried to hide the pregnancy and then kill the infant. Not being sure of  privacy protection may have been the reason she did not go for an abortion.
Or the baby was killed for no other reason than for being a girl (Female infanticide). Who knows. But abandonment or killing of newborns for being girls or following incestuous relations is not uncommon in her homeland. Her features indicate either Indian or Pakistani background. Nevertheless, the callousness is no surprise.

A Staten Island woman was charged with murder for allegedly dumping her newborn baby girl in the trash.

Nausheen Rahman, 28, was initially charged with concealment of a human corpse before the body of the dead newborn baby was found outside her condominium around 11.30am on Saturday.

She was charged with second-degree murder after a medical examiner determined that the baby was alive before it was thrown in the trash, according to NBC 4.

The New York Police Department said officers responded to a 911 call at a home on Richmond Hill Road in the New Springville neighborhood.

The condominium is just a few blocks from the Staten Island Mall.

Police found the newborn baby unconscious and unresponsive.

Emergency crews pronounced the child dead at the scene.

Rahman went to Staten Island University Hospital Friday evening and told staff that she was bleeding as a result of giving birth, police said.

The hospital had no record of her birth and she explained that the infant was born at home and that she had disposed of it, according to NBC 4.

After hours of questioning, Rahman said she gave birth but the baby had died and she admitted to throwing the child in the trash before going to the hospital.

The woman originally told hospital staff that she gave birth five days prior and ‘threw away’ the baby, according to the New York Post.

But she later changed her story and said she gave birth on Thursday.

Neighbors said Rahman has lived with her family for several years at the condominium.
